Hello I have a small Chinese lacquered box c.1920. No interest on ebay - how best to sell it please?

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

I'm ok to wait but am surprised this is taking so long. What happened to 8 minutes, the wait time I was given?!

Thanks! A moderator requested that I assist you. Your antique chinoiserie lacquer box should sell at the 30 to 40 pound level. I'd list it as a "Buy it now" with a price of 49.99 pounds, and have make an offer turned on. The comparables (attached) have sold at that price level recently. Again, thank you and please let me know if I may be of further help with this question.
